There is a lovely nature that is about 2 miles. As others users said, lots of dirt roads for mudding. If you do want to go mudding, bring a map as the roads are extensive and it’s easy to get lost. Also ensure that you have a vehicle that can handle conditions. The forest service will not rescue you if you need a tow (learned this the hard way).

I don’t think so. We only stayed overnight and did walk a loop on the gravel road the goes through and around the forest. I think I saw a short trail that went down to a river/ creek, but we didn’t take it.

Internally there are about 4 miles of trails. Also, miles and miles of fire roads through the forest. Nearby is The Baldwin rail trail, an access parking lot is just a few miles away.The Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail is a 100 foot wide Right-of-Way (ROW) currently extending approximately 14.5 miles from Imeson Road in Jacksonville to the Town of Baldwin. A 12’ wide paved trail currently exists for hikers, bikers and roller-bladers to enjoy. An equestrian trail parallels the paved trail. The ROW is flat and passes through rural areas with abundant plant life, wildlife and trees. The trail is contiguous with the Camp Milton Historic Preserve, which serves as a mid-point trailhead. Five other trailheads along the Rail Trail are located at Imeson Road, Halsema Road, Otis Road, the old trail depot in the City of Baldwin, and Brandy Branch Road. There are approx. 8.5 miles of spur trails onto the Jacksonville Rail Trail Buffer Properties that are designated for unpaved day hiking and equestrain use.
